Hello, my name’s Maxine and I’ve got a confession to make – I detest sales shopping. Always have; long before my official career in fashion began. On Boxing Day, driving past the half-mile long queues outside the local Next pitying the poor souls shivering in the cold became as much of a family tradition as opening presents, eating turkey and consuming more Ferrero Rochers than should be humanly possible. Then came the internet, which brought all the carnage and mob mentality of sales shopping into my front room, affecting my closest family and friends. I was alone, isolated in my abstinence and left bewildered as to what all the fuss was about. Now, though, I get it. Thanks to gadgets and gizmos (read: iPhones/apps/online baskets) aplenty (thanks for that one, Ariel), sales shopping has never been easier. The offers have also improved significantly over the years. No longer must you fight fellow ladies for trodden-on jumpers or the odd iffy dress with holes in for a measly 20 per cent off. o n t h e C oV e r . . .

“In sales season, you can always find really good quality coats for a fraction of the price. I usually go for something superclassic so it’s still relevant through to next winter too. It’s always freezing at the beginning of the year, so you’ll get loads of wear out of it, plus you can never have enough coats – it’s pretty much the main part of your outfit for half of the year!”

Ruby Beales, Accessories Buyer, Very Exclusive “Sale shopping can be impulsive – sometimes something seems a great price and we buy it without even thinking. This is how we end up with a wardrobe full of items we don’t wear. I have a rule: think of three ways to style it. Nothing is a bargain if you never wear it.”

From chill-beating cover-ups to knee-high boots, we’ve given you the cream of the winter fashion crop – and now it’s time to turn our attention to jumpers. As far as we’re concerned, there are only two worthy of our time: the retro zip-up and the ruffle. Chloé kick-started the vintage zip-up comeback with its sport luxe tops and now

words: Bridie wilkins @Bridiewilkins

everyone’s wearing the 70s, après-ski-vibe number. This time, it’s been brought bang up to date, worn tucked into A-line minis and with wide-leg trousers. The ruffle type, meanwhile, is a lot more ladylike, and looks just as good teamed with a girly miniskirt and loafers as it does with kick-flares and biker boots. Either way, both will bag you major fashion points and you can get your own from just £18. The only question is, which one will you be wearing? The power’s all yours, so choose wisely.

et’s not pretend: 2016 was a bit of a shocker. Mainly politically, but let’s not go there. Instead, I’d like to share with you my excitement over some brand new labels set to shake things up in 2017. I’m pretty certain that fashion will save us all so, without further ado, let me introduce you to Peggy Hartanto. Peggy creates what I can only describe as architectural works of art. Her eponymous label may only be four years old but Gigi Hadid, Lilah Parsons and Bella Thorne have already worn her pieces on the red carpet. But don’t think there’s an A-list price tag – everything starts at £90 and nothing is more expensive than £500. Peggy’s designs are currently stocked in Fenwick and online, with Selfridges and ASOS both having expressed an interest. Watch this space. Similarly, Spanish shoe genius L’Intervalle, recently worn by Immy Waterhouse, has set my feet all aquiver. When I first set eyes on the fuchsia, block heel mules and denim flatforms, I expected to see at least a three-figure price to go with them – but this fancy footwear starts at £60. Speaking of fancy, scarf aficionados Lily and Lionel branched into ready-to-wear last year, creating a beautiful collection of blouses, skirts and flowing maxis – all made of silk. All in all, 2017 is shaping up to be very promising indeed. Sartorially speaking, that is. The rest remains to be seen.

here’s wrapping paper on the floor, turkey leftovers to be eaten and those distant relatives still to visit. Yep, Christmas only finished five minutes ago and already we’re being bombarded by new year mantras and adverts for fitness DVDs. Take a moment, then, and let us provide you with some respite. For we may be discussing Primark’s new Fit range, but trust us when we say that this haul is as much for those of you wanting to rock the athleisure trend as it is for the gym bunnies. That’s because Primark has thought of everything, from high-performance leggings and racer-back crop tops to jean-friendly bodies and colour block tees. In short, if you’re preparing for a marathon in 2017, have signed up to a new ballet class or you simply like wearing comfy sportswear round-the-clock, then this is for you. The best bit? You can snap up a whole new workout wardrobe for around a tenner. Great news for anyone facing an austere January, which – let’s face it – is all of us.

hether it’s tartan, gingham or Prince of Wales, our love of checks knows no sartorial bounds. Second only to classic Breton stripes, grid motifs have long been an outfit stalwart for those in the know, but now there’s a new print on the block worthy of our attention. Formerly associated with lumberjacks – yes, those in the business of logging – block red and black checks have been awarded #ootd status thanks to the likes of Zara and Isabel Marant, who’ve given the casual staple a glossy overhaul. Warning: you may feel a sudden urge to yell ‘Timber!’ but don’t worry, these outfits won’t fall short (ahem). Think slinky slip dresses, cocoon coats and pelmet skirts and you’re on the right track. Of course, there are plenty of shirts to choose from too. Just replace the tool belt and Caterpillar boots with leather trousers and velvet flats.

NEW YO U ! Why January is the time for change – and the trends to try… Words: Lexxi davis

T

here’s something about a new year beginning that makes us want to give our hair a real overhaul. According to Google, the week 10 to 16 January is when people are most likely to search the term ‘hair colour change’. So to help you find your perfect new style, we’ve recruited a team of hair experts to reveal what’s in store for your 2017 do!

A Fr inge Thing T h e c e l e b : Bella Hadid e x p e r T : Victoria Beckham’s go-to guy, Ben Cooke,Pantene and Aussie hair care ambassador and co-founder of Lockonego salon ‘A new year can mean a fresh start, so instead of giving up something, why not reinvest in something like your hair?’ says Ben. ‘Getting a fringe cut in can have just as much impact as a full restyle.’ It’s a quick, easy way to change your look without losing length and it’s a trend that’s here to stay. Ben recommends a chat with your stylist beforehand to choose the most flattering shape: ‘Oval faces tend to suit fringes past the eyebrow, but a square face can carry off a shorter style.’

T h e c e l e b : Lucy Hale e x p e r T : Queen of colour Christel Lundqvist, director of STIL Salon ‘Your hair is one of the first things people see and one of the initial things you notice when you get up in the morning and look in the mirror. Hairstyle and colour not only play a role in how people perceive you, but also about how you feel about yourself,’ Christel explains. Lots of girls get the urge to go blonde in the New Year: ‘Especially when it’s dark and cold outside, many of our clients opt to go lighter to lift their spirits and their complexion.’ If

you’re looking for a Lucy Hale type makeover, this is one of the best styles to opt for. ‘If you want a more subtle change,’ Christel says, ‘balayage remains a popular method, as it’s a natural look and gives a very soft regrowth. You can get a lot more longevity out of this type of colour.’ So there you have it, ladies: lighter hair, lighter mind!

Lobbing It Off T h e c e l e b : Cara Delevingne e x p e r T : The man behind Kate Middleton’s mane, Richard Ward, royal and celebrity hairdresser ‘A new look can really boost your self-confidence,’ says Richard. ‘That’s why so many people go for a hair change after a break-up – they want a fresh start and to feel positive. The lob is a great style to try, it’s really versatile as it can be worn in lots of different ways, and it’s not too short to be tied or pinned up, either. The key to this style is personalisation and you can do this by adding a fringe, a different parting or layering – a lob can be tailored to suit anyone. As long as it’s worn below the chin, it won’t change the shape of your face, but it can really refresh your look.’ Team Lob it is, then. Thanks, Richard!

The Drastic Colour

‘Going lighter can always lift someone’s confidence and improve their mood. I always recommend ensuring your colour is matched to your skin tone to achieve the most flattering @lookmagazine

shade for you,’ says Adam. He also suggests trying a wig in the colour you’re lusting after, before you go full bleach: ‘Be mindful of copying celebrities who are dyeing their hair from very dark to platinum, as it’s sometimes a wig and this colour is very high-maintenance with regular root regrowth. If you do want to go platinum, however, I’d recommend L’Oréal Professionnel Smartbond to anyone colouring or pre-lightening their hair in-salon.’ So, as much as we love Zoë’s latest silvery locks, we’re off to the wig shop first…

Will Michelle and Mark have time for each other in 2017?

2

.co.uk

here’s no denying that Michelle Keegan has had a super-successful 2016. And she’s set to have an even busier 2017 thanks to her role as Corporal Georgie Lane in BBC drama Our Girl, for which she’s scored rave reviews. Soon after Our Girl wrapped, Michelle, 29, was on the set of her next project, ITV drama Bobby And Tina. She’s also starred on Lip Sync Battle UK, The Crystal Maze and has lent her voice to BBC Radio 4’s play On Kosovo Field. In the first half of 2017, Michelle will be back in South Africa for the next series of Our Girl, which could take up to eight months to film – plus she has commitments to brands Revlon and Lipsy. Meanwhile, her husband Mark is tied up with his TV and radio shows in the UK and abroad. It’s no wonder spending quality time together has been a juggling act. Last month, Michelle told Look they planned Christmas

E L L E H C M I in Essex, but sources say Michelle is set to face her most hectic year yet… so will Michelle Mark, family wowed or her career audiences in Our Girl take priority? A source close to the couple tells us: ‘There’s a big difference between saying you’re going to do something and actually doing it. Michelle is well aware that they can talk endlessly about second honeymoons and making up for lost time. That’s why she’s so insistent with Mark that they have to actually put things in the diary.’ Michelle took a huge step in her career when she decided to quit her popular role as Tina McIntyre in Coronation Street in 2013. At the time, she said: ‘I don’t want to look back in 10 years and think: “What if?” At the minute I’ve got no babies, so I can venture out and try other things.’ And Michelle hasn’t looked back since. In fact, removing that safety net of a possible cobbles return has helped her max out her opportunities – so is the next stop Tinseltown? Our Girl’s stunt co-ordinator, Paul Pieterse thinks so, saying: ‘I’m working with top Hollywood stars and Michelle’s of that calibre.’ @lookmagazine

In the months leading up to marrying Mark in 2015, Michelle’s career soared. At the time many tipped the lovebirds as ‘the new Posh & Becks’. Now, sources tell us it’s not just Michelle who feels wanderlust – Mark’s doing small roles at the moment and he’s ‘serious’ about acting. Should the Hollywood casting call come sooner rather than later, Mark too could be set to go Stateside. Earlier this month, the 29-year-old revealed he filmed two episodes of E!’s The Royals. And Look can reveal that last week the ex-TOWIE star applied for a US work visa. The insider adds: ‘His work schedule is more unstable than hers, so when opportunities come up he likes to say yes.’ Speaking of schedules, Michelle told Look she has to constantly sync her diary with family and friends: ‘Mark’s always looking at his diary and I’m looking at mine and my friends are all on WhatsApp trying to arrange their time.’ For talented actors like Michelle, Hollywood film shoots can be lengthy, so there’s bound to be even more pressure to prioritise. We hope the stars will align in 2017, making ‘Marchelle’ Tinseltown’s next hot power couple.

get any easier for the star in the New Year. The natural closure that comes with the end of one year and start of another is not something Kim can look forward to, with French police officials recently admitting that the brutal mystery heist is no closer to being solved. Furthermore, Kim’s attempt to reintroduce herself to the red carpet with an appearance at Denise Rich’s Charity Angel Ball in November was overshadowed by the worrying hospitalisation of Kanye, 39. The merciless attention that followed his alleged breakdown diverted the limelight from her return to work, as did the reported dramatic overhaul in the family’s tight and trusted security squad. With uncertainty over whether Kim and her clan will film another season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians – putting their marriage back under the microscope of public scrutiny – there’s certainly a big question mark over how she’ll sustain her image in 2017. But if anyone can make a comeback, it’s the girl boss at the helm of the Kimye dynasty.

he silence of Kim Kardashian since her harrowing Paris robbery in October has been deafening. Ambushed by five armed men dressed in police uniforms, bound, gagged and thrown in a bathtub while more than £9 million worth of personal jewellery was stolen from her, Kim’s ordeal immediately threw everything about the Kardashian’s lifestyle into question. The undisputed queen of social media chose to handle her healing process with a 10-week hiatus from the public eye, which was finally broken when she uploaded a cheeky twerking video on 14 December. But prior to that, she completely distanced herself from the life she’s so famously led for the past decade. She chose instead to focus on her family – daughter North, three, and son Saint, 13 months – and husband Kanye West. While 2016 might have been a bad year for most of us, it’s been a nightmare for Kim, 36. And cruelly it seems things aren’t about to

horoscope special Whether it’s love, money or work, our astrologer Raphaella can predict what’s in store for you in 2017. Read on to discover your personal destiny…

Aries

21 March-19 April

Career A question mark hangs over career and work in early January, but it’s not bleak – a complete change could be the answer. Go for the long-term plan rather than the quick fix and by late January you’re feeling much more confident – networking is key. Money Opt for online bargain-hunting in early March to see big returns. If you have a game plan for your autumn budget you’ll be in a great place by the end of the year. Investment dressing pays off at work. Love Sexy Mars and love planet Venus are in your sign throughout February and March bringing plenty of potential in the bedroom, while August eclipses bring excitement and drama. If you’re single, there’s a significant other on the cards, but those tied down will be pleased to hear that this is the year your romance will develop deeper ties.

Taurus 20 April-20 May

Career Expect to be super-busy at the beginning of the year; February will be particularly crazy. You’ll encounter more emails and meetings than usual and people hovering around your desk – and some will push you to question your next move. With lucky Jupiter in the work zone ’til October, 2017 is the year to be planning it. Money Generous Taureans probably spent more than they meant to recently. Deal with that promptly in the New Year and expect a windfall in May as Mars is in the money zone. Time to put some aside for the sales? Love What appears to be a harmless flirtation brings complications in the spring, raising more questions than answers. But by May you reach an important turning point and then you won’t look back. Jupiter moves into the relationship angle by September, bringing flirt potential and a fiery, passionate autumn – for the single and coupled. @lookmagazine

lookmag

Gemini 21 May-20 June

Career Work comes under the spotlight in January. Need a new job challenge? Look for roles that offer more responsibility and an opportunity to progress. Work hard now and the pay-off will come later. Self-employed? A financially rewarding contract comes your way towards the end of the year. Money Make getting finances on track a priority this year. Once you’ve got a financial game plan, indulging can be guilt free. Love Serious Saturn returns to your sign and it will force you to take a closer look at relationships past and present, with lessons to be learnt. Meanwhile Jupiter is in the romance angle, which means there’ll be plenty of scope for loved-up fun with passion hotspots in July and October. lookmagazineuk

Cancer 21 June-22 July

Career Change is in the air! For far too long Saturn in the work zone has held you back. Mars will affect your career throughout February and it’s time to up your game. Be prepared to rethink things and put some effort in to see the rewards. Money Lunar eclipses in February and August suggest you’ll be splashing the cash. It would be better to put some money away for an unexpected bill late summer. Love Get ready to read between the lines when Mercury moves through the relationship phase alongside a powerful Full Moon in January. But it’s around your birthday when the magic begins – you’ll be shocked at how much attention you receive! Come the autumn, it’s looking like you’ll be totally loved-up.

Leo

23 July-22 August

Career All eyes are on you in January, so it’s best to pause posting too much online and keep up to speed. There’s scope to brush up old skills or learn new ones in spring and if you take up the offer, it could mean more money in the long term. Money It’s a good year for money but in March and early April it’s time to have a clearout – sell items now to get the best price. Love A run of eclipses suggests you’ll want your man by your side in February and August. But passionate Mars moves into your sign in July and August, making you seemingly irresistible. September and December are your months to be wined and dined.

Virgo

23 August-22 September

Career Troubleshooter Mars moving through the career zone in late April and May highlights work and job opportunities. If you’re looking for a new challenge or hanker after that dream job, this is the time to make a move and step up your efforts. An August eclipse advises compromise and getting others on side. Money Lucky Jupiter in your sign’s money zone means you’re in the cash. Keep a close eye on prices in March and April and you’re in for a great year. Love Magic is in the air as the New Year begins and there could be more than one name in the frame. February’s eclipse brings romance and sparkle and more than a hint of a happy-ever-after ending. But take your time over the right decision – it won’t harm things. @lookmagazine

Libra

23 September-22 October

Career Go-getting Mars is providing just the push you need in January for your career to take off. Work out where you want to be and let the late February eclipse take you there. Expect serious recognition for your efforts in June and July. Money Lucky Jupiter is in your sign ’til mid-October, which tempts you to indulge. Strike a balance to keep things going well. Love Your sign has been singled out for a splash of love action from now until early June. Even better, you have sultry Venus in tandem with Mars in February, making this a Valentine’s Day to remember.

Scorpio

23 October-21 November

Career Flirting at work could turn into something more fun when they reciprocate in early spring. Career hotspots occur in July and August, with a decision pending in early September. That’s a good time to take that trip you’ve been wavering over. Money When it comes to both making and keeping money, you’re a natural. Best to keep an eye on finances in the autumn when the urge to be extravagant kicks in. Love You’re going to experience a passionate attraction in January. All’s not what it seems at first, but there is potential there. Already loved-up? You’ll be celebrating this year, with autumn seeming the most likely time.

Sagittarius 22 November-21 December

Career Saturn, the planet of hard work, makes you focus on where you want to be. And it might make you think about learning some new skills. Find out what help is available and how and where to get it – make the most of feeling motivated. Money With Saturn in your sign, you’ve been sensible for long enough. Book that holiday in August or September – it’s worth splashing the cash. Love Venus scatters her magic and weaves her spell from February through to June, bringing plenty of exhilarating twists and turns. It looks as if there could be more than one person on the scene, but warning: you need to make your mind up by May.

Capricorn 22 December-19 January

Career Jupiter, the planet of opportunity, brings a lucky break from out of the blue. Take advantage of this good fortune and move fast. A new contract? A new job? A change of career? Tap into that ambitious side and let it take you to the top. Money The year starts with some additional expenses in February and August. The good news is that Jupiter boosts your earning power too. Result. Love Late spring and summer brings hot romance for Capricorns. Whether you’re loved-up or single you’re going to be very attractive to others. This year your love life brings much happiness and contentment – refreshing after recent situations.

Career As the New Year begins there’s scope to network and build a strong support system so it’s there when you need it. But it’s later in the year when your career hits the headlines. Start the countdown to early October when Jupiter, the success planet, moves into the career zone. Money Neptune has made it hard to get a grip on finances these past couple of years. Mars in the money angle in January inspires you to do a financial health check while an eclipse in late February may bring a minor windfall out of the blue. Treat yourself! Love A lunar eclipse turns up the emotional volume in early February making it a potentially tricky time for a close relationship. But a powerful solar eclipse in August becomes a game changer. By mid-September, you’ll know where your heart really lies.

Career With Saturn in the career and work sector for the past couple of years it’s often been a steep learning curve. Don’t worry, this will change – but it’s going to take just a little bit longer, then you get to reap the rewards of your hard work. Money Cash is big news for you in January, which means you’re going to do very well. It’s worth making an investment in June. Love It’s looking like you’ve just won the relationship lottery! But a powerful eclipse during late February marks an important turning point. Hold on tight to your dreams and don’t be persuaded to settle for second best – you deserve more. lookmagazineuk

Goodbye, 2016!

Take a trip down (short-term) memory lane with our celebration of the past 12 months, from Brexit to Bake Off. Whether you’re sad to see 2016 go or simply can’t wait for 2017 to (ahem) trump it, here’s a recap of the year…

January

Goodbye, StarMen

leo Finally doeS it!

HollyWood’S neW PoWer couPle At the Golden Globes on 8 January, Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender sat next to one another before attending the after-party together. The world swooned and so did we – but for a slightly different reason. Alicia’s red carpet outfits – mainly consisting of custom Louis Vuitton gowns (well, she is the brand’s style ambassador) – were some of the best we’ve ever seen. Bring on the 2017 Oscars.

Fe b r u a r y

Sorry to start on a downer. David Bowie’s death came as a terrible shock after it was revealed that he’d been fighting cancer for 18 months before he died on 10 January. Just four days later, the beloved Alan Rickman also succumbed to the illness. Gone but not forgotten, these powerhouses of talent are sorely missed.

After five previous nominations and approximately 37,284,402 memes affectionately mocking his lack of an Oscar, Leonardo DiCaprio finally scooped his first Academy Award for his performance in The Revenant. He received a standing ovation as he accepted the trophy and Kate Winslet’s tearful reaction subsequently sent the internet into meltdown. We’ll never let go…

cHiaM iS born

The Brit Awards afterparty was where we first spotted 2016’s most talkedabout couple. Yes, Cheryl and Liam Payne exchanged flirty tweets before reportedly spending the whole event together. Now, rumour has it, Cheryl is ‘pregnant’. Watch this space…


tHe VeteMentS eFFect

Vetements was the breakout fashion brand of the year thanks to the label’s sellout £800 step-hem jeans. Cue a million high street tributes, putting an end to the reign of skinny jeans.

March

GaGa For Gucci

By the third month of the year, Alessandro Michele’s spring/summer collection for Gucci had appeared on countless magazine covers, hundreds of street stylers and was even infiltrating our dreams. It was official: Gucci fever had swept the globe. It’s only heightened as the year’s progressed, so we can’t wait to see what the Gucci god comes up with next.

FroM Hedi, WitH loVe

For his final Saint Laurent collection, Hedi Slimane composed a love letter to the fashion house in the form of a bright red, fluffy, heart-shaped coat. First seen on the catwalk during Paris Fashion Week, this traffic-stopping creation was worn by Cara Delevingne, Rihanna, Kendall Jenner and Anna Dello Russo. Available for a mere £9,900, we might not be seeing this in our 2017 wardrobes.

Millie Mac V Pro Green As Chiam formed, another couple split. We were sad to hear of Millie Mackintosh and Professor Green’s separation. They said they’d parted on ‘amicable terms’, but there’s been some pretty public animosity between them since Millie moved on with ex Hugo Taylor. Here’s hoping for a more peaceful 2017 for them both.

you KnoW notHinG, Jon SnoW

When Kit Harington was spotted on set for season six of Game Of Thrones, he claimed he only appeared in cadaver form. But once the show hit our screens in April, the jig was up and now we know that – spoiler alert! – Jon Snow isn’t just dreamy, he’s invincible.


meT Ball madness

As always, the Met Gala was an A-list -packed affair, brimming with couture and some impressive posing – particularly from Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik, who donned matching outfits for their red carpet debut: she in Tommy Hilfiger, he in a Versace suit with bionic arms. Ah, young love.

cannes couTure

Blake Lively ruled Cannes. As she declared her pregnancy to the world in that blue Versace gown, we bowed down. But it wasn’t just that dress – her entire wardrobe was nothing short of breathtaking.

May

It’s even harder to speak of US President Barack Obama’s departure now we know who his successor is, but nothing can take away from his speech at his final White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Addressing the crowd of journalists, he didn’t just tackle the serious stuff – he also cracked some hilarious jokes before literally dropping the mic and declaring: ‘Obama out!’

April

The Queen Turns 90

Celebrations were in full force as the Queen marked her 90th birthday on 21 April. Events were held throughout the year, including TV specials featuring K-Middy and Prince Harry sharing their stories about our monarch and speaking of their admiration for her. It’s enough to bring a tear to our eye.

purple reiGn

The world suffered another devastating loss when it was announced that Prince had died due to an accidental overdose at his home in Minnesota on 21 April. Tributes came pouring in from around the world. Thankfully, his music lives on.

Kylie’s lip KiT hiTs BecKy v Beyonce

When Beyoncé released Lemonade, all we could ask was: who is ‘Becky’? Bey’s lyrics seemed to relate to infidelity, so the rumour mill went into overdrive as it was claimed that designer Rachel Roy had been having an affair with Jay Z. It’s even been suggested that Kris Jenner is ‘Becky’ (we know!).

When she launched the Lip Kits in 2015, Kylie Jenner practically caused a riot, with every shade selling out almost immediately. In April, she launched the glosses – Like, Literally and So Cute – which sold quicker than you could say ‘Tyga’.


June BrexiT Blues

poKémon Go

Great news for fashion tourists: Louis Vuitton bags became cheaper in the UK than anywhere else following the EU referendum; but we had to deal with a far more depressing issue: packets of Maltesers and Toblerones getting smaller. While this isn’t officially down to Brexit, we’re going with it. We need to blame someone.

Hordes of people running around and shouting ‘Not another Pidgey!’ at their phones… Welcome to the future.

JusTice For BarB!

Stranger Things was the best thing to happen to Netflix since, well, anything. But Barb’s seemingly untimely demise left viewers in distress, prompting countless ‘Justice for Barb’ memes. Bring on season two!

We’d seen the pics of Kate Moss in sequins, we’d rewatched the series and we even brought out the Bolly. Ab Fab was everything.

His video caused a real stir thanks to the naked waxworks of Anna Wintour, Donald Trump, Amber Rose, Taylor Swift and Kimye themselves, all in a gigantic bed. And the lyrics: ‘I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous’ sparked the ultimate feud between Yeezy and Tay…

orlando Bloom’s holiday alBum

Erm, do we really need to explain this one? While on hol with girlfriend Katy Perry, Orlando apparently felt so relaxed that he didn’t even need to wear his swimming trunks. The world really got an eyeful. Awkward.

August alicia Keys Joins The #nomaKeup movemenT

She presented an award to Calvin Harris at the MTV Awards with her face free of make-up, prompting Twitter trolls to react. But this was no stunt: Alicia Keys proclaimed that she was done with make-up and she hasn’t worn it since. And she looks phenomenal.


Kim Kardashian was headline news when masked attackers broke into the apartment where she was staying during Paris Fashion Week and robbed her at gunpoint.

Bake Off BiDs farewell…

…to the BBC. Yep, Selasi, Benjamina and Candice were among the last contestants to bake in the famous tent before the show decamps to Channel 4. The only original team member going with the show is Paul Hollywood. We just don’t know what we’ll do without Mel, Sue and Mary!

The world didn’t see this one coming. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s split shocked us all – and then, as if that weren’t bad enough, reports later suggested that Ange was filing for sole custody of their six children. Another Hollywood couple breaks our hearts.

VB’s BeauTy range Victoria Beckham made our beauty bags’ dreams come true when she launched a 14-piece collection in collaboration with Estée Lauder. From beautiful shadows to the perfect nude lippie, we’re totally obsessed.

Kudos to New Look for making our favourite tee of the year. And that’s all we have to say on the matter.

Clever layering

l ’60s style mini dresses are huge this winter but if you aren’t a fan of super-short hemlines then you’ll want to avoid this trend, right? wrong! Forget flashing flesh – instead use your dress as a long-line tunic and layer it over skinny jeans. genius. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3… add a bright scarf or rollneck to bring a pop of colour to your all-blue ensemble. wear with a pair of chic loafers to smarten up the casual denim. style with a denim bag to upgrade to the triple denim trend.

More is more here, so begin with statement eyes. Draw an extended ‘V’ shape to the outer corner of lashes using a gel liquid liner.

2

Apply a pale lipstick with a creamy texture to create a base. This will make the glitter ‘pop’ and will also help it grip on to your lips.

Mix copper and gold glitters together. Hold a tissue under your bottom lip to catch any excess, and gently press the mix onto your mouth.

MOVIE

action version of the Disney favourite is the first big film for us in 2017 (and possibly the best). The childhood tale we all know and love is pretty close to the original, so true fans won’t be left disappointed. Emma Watson as Belle in that dress and the formidable Beast, played by Downton’s Dan Stevens, make for a match made in Disney heaven. An age-old love story with a super British cast and plenty of movie magic – what’s not to like? RELEASE DATE: 17 March HyPE FACToR: ✪ ✪ ✪ ✪ ✪

Big Little Lies The story follows three mothers, played by Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley, whose seemingly perfect lives come undone behind a mask of lies and murder. We predict this will be the most talked-about TV of 2017. Zoë Kravitz and Alexander Skarsgård also star in the eight-part series. We’re obsessed already. HBo, February HypE FAcToR: ✪
